Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week we present the 1982 read-along of, “The Story of Tron”. 


For more than four years, The Mouse Lounge has been entertaining listeners with an informative and irreverent view of Disney.  On the "Extinct Attractions Club Podcast" Liana lent her depth of knowledge and sense of humor, quickly becoming a fan favorite. We are thrilled and excited to announce "Liana Behind the Mickey Bar" as a regular feature. Belly to the bar with us, as we discuss the world of TRON!


From the Walt Disney Archives:  Direct from the archives, learn about the history of the sometimes maligned but nonetheless visually groundbreaking picture, TRON.  Also, in honor of Mickey’s Birthday, who turns 82 the day this episode was released, we dig really deep into the stacks and pull out a 78 from 1937.  Have a listen to “Billy Murray’s, “Mickey’s Birthday Party.”


Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we continue our tech tour with a trip in Tomorrowland on Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters!


 We'll close this week’s show a pair of tracks that produce the thunderous pulse that is the sound track for ElecTRONica’s Laserman!

Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week we present a Disneyland Little Long Playing Record.  First, listen to a short biography about the incomparable Disneyland Story Reader, Robie Lester followed by her exquisite telling of the Story of Sleeping Beauty!   

Next: a special Mouse Lounge mini-documentary about the history of the 1959 feature film, Sleeping Beauty.

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we feature a slight departure from our typical ride-thrus.  So often we walk through Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland on our way to our favorite Fantasyland attractions.  This time, we stop just beyond the castle bridge and listen; to hear a beautiful medley of music from the films that define the Fantasyland sound experience. 

We'll close this week’s show with a trio of unique interpretations of Sammy Fain’s, “Once Upon a Dream”.  First, from the six disc superset, “A Musical History of Disneyland” we board King Arthur’s Carousel and hear a fantastic arrangement for Stinson Band Organ.  Then, we’ll delve in a bit of Disney Bubble Gum Pop and hear Emily Osments auto-tuned performance.  And just about when three minutes of Disneymania convinces you there’s no such thing as talent, have a listen to the original Aurora and Prince Philip, Mary Costa & Bill Shirley from the re-mastered soundtrack.

Enjoy!

"Shermania!"
(((HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED)))
Produced as a tribute to Disney Legends, the Sherman Brothers, "Shermania!" the film began life first as a song.  Robert and Richard Sherman's Father, Tin Pan Alley tune-smith, Al Sherman, told his boys to follow the three S’s when writing songs: make them singable, simple, and sincere.
With that ideal as inspiration, composer Jerry Ranger and author/lyricist Cynthia Ferrell co-wrote the song, "Singable, Simple, and Sincere".  The song is performed by Tess Ferrell, now lead singer in "Big Band Beat," a broadway-style show on the American Waterfront at Tokyo DisneySea.
The film, now titled, "Shermania!" was shot over the course of two days in August 2010 in Los Angeles and Thousand Oaks, California, under the direction of Cynthia Ferrell & Brian McDonald and stars Tess Ferrell and Jerry Ranger.  
Other credits include:
Cinematographer: Tim Carr
Editors: Brian McDonald, Chuck Lewis & Nick Brosco
Boom operator and production support: Gary Chambers
Script supervisor: Nancy Friedman
Musical arrangement & performance: David Vasquez
Recorded, mixed, & mastered: Jeff Lewis at Moonlight Studios, Los Angeles
With special thanks to Gregg Sherman
The film is distributed by the Mouse Lounge Podcast
Enjoy!

Mouse Lounge -- Season 05 -- Episode 02 -- September 12, 2010

In this episode, the Mouse Lounge brings to life what takes place in space in Tomorrowland.

Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week, from a Disneyland Record 1957 release, Jiminy Cricket and Walt Disney narrate “A Day at Disneyland”.

From the Walt Disney Archives:  We’ll go back in time and have a listen to the two-longest lived attractions in the Disneyland’s Tomorrowland South building,

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, we travel flashback to 1987 and take in the Captain EO Tribute!

We'll close this week’s show with a couple of space-themed tracks.  First Kingsley & Perry’s, “Spooks in Space”.  You’d be right if you guessed this was the duo that wrote and recorded the original “Barouque Hoedown” used in the Main Street Electrical Parade.   We’ll finish out the episode with the perky and optimistic Sherman Brothers tune, Miracles from Molecules.

 

ENJOY!
